The first television series created by Haxan
FreakyLinks was a television show which combined elements of horror, mystery, and comedy . It aired on the Fox Network from October 2000 until June 2001, for a total run of 13 episodes.
In 2008, the series began airing on Universal's horror network Chiller.
FreakyLinks centered on Derek Barnes (played by Ethan Embry), a resident of Orlando, Florida who ran a website called "FreakyLinks.com" that sought out the dark and forbidden truths behind paranormal phenomena and urban legends, assisted by his friends.
Derek took over investigations after his twin brother, Adam (the proprieter of a more serious paranormal website called "OccultResearch.com"), died under mysterious circumstances; a mysterious stranger by the name of Vince Elsing (Dennis Christopher), who claimed to have been the subject of strange scientific tests that left him with paranormal abilities, occasionally contacted Derek with information about Adam. The show's episodes revolved around Derek and his friends investigating supernatural claims for the website and uncovering clues that reveal the truth of his brother's fate.
FreakyLinks (originally titled "Fearsum" until a few months before airing) was developed by Haxan Films partner Gregg Hale and screenwriter David S. Goyer.
Haxan followed a similar marketing strategy as Blair Witch and created a website, long before the show was set to air, called "Freakylinks.com" which was cleverly designed to look like an amateurish, home-brew website made by real-life paranormal enthusiasts.
